Soil Moisture Sensor
The PCTUM011 is used to measure volumetric moisture content of soils and other material for scientific research and agricultural applications.
The sensor measures volumetric water content via the dielectric constant of the soil using capacitance technology.
It uses a 70 MHz frequency, which minimises salinity and textural effects, making it an ideal sensor in agricultural and standard scientific projects.
Using the PCTUM011 is possibile to have accurately measure of water content where a large volume of influence is needed, with minimal salinity and textural effects in most soils. The 10 cm long PCTUM011 has a ~1.3 liter area ofinfluence.
The PCTUM011 can be used to take continuous measurements over time through permanent or temporary burial and connection to a soil misture meter.
